First, a helpful clarification is that Ellison Creek and Water Wheel Falls are the same location. To get there, head North from Payson via the 260 highway. Across from Home Depot, turn right onto Houston Mesa Rd and stay on that for 9 miles before you get to the parking lot. It's located on the right side just before the second crossing campground. If you get to Whispering Pines, turn around and look again for the parking lot a mile or two south. This hike will take about half a day and children should be okay making this hike but it may get difficult navigating rocks depending on the height of the water.

Spend a fun and peaceful day searching for Geodes! Park at the bottom of the hill and walk up to the power lines. Once at the power lines, follow the hill to the top. Be warned, it's a pretty steep hike so make sure and wear tennis shoes. At the top of the hill, you will get to a pole with a transformer on it and the road veers to the left. This route has open fields of geodes. If you continue on, you'll find more that way too. It's beautiful, quiet and remote.
